    If we did get DeCastro I'd hope we leave him at Guard his natural position for a year or two. Let him get comfortable in the NFL first before asking him to change positions. Plus, if I remember correctly Bernadeau is a big boy. Plug him in at Center.

    There is still a couple of FA C's out there. Jeff Faine, Jameal Jackson, Jason Brown we could sign to leave DeCastro at guard.

    I don't know if I think he's the next John Hannah.

    I think we both just replied to your concern about starting a first time NFL LT in Smith next to a rookie in DeCastro.

    I don't know why anyone would dismiss the thoughts of all national writers. I think it's quite likely that Mosely (or whoever) could have connections just as solid as anyone at VR.

    I'll take anyone's credible thoughts on what they think or what they even hear. I'm interested. But I don't buy any of it hook, line & sinker for reasons stated earlier - no one knows for sure what's going to happen until things go live and start playing out pick by pick. Shoot I'll bet there are even cases where GMs wake up on Thursday and deviate from their Wednesday board.

    I'll agree with you on your first point (why listen regarding what someone says?).

    But I suspect teams are very intentional about being careful to avoid tipping their hand through players visits, interviews, etc.

    I also believe that teams practice misinformation or at the very purpose to blur their real intentions amidst a pool of faux interest.

    The stakes are too high not to.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all if there was a tug of war in the front office with Jerry acting as the final draft day decision maker, with Team Watt winning at the time of his report

    I would say that from the Combine to the draft you take anything any team official says with a very large grain of salt.
